London: There are a lot of things coming for smartphone enthusiasts from the arrival of the world’s first 8-core handset – the ZTE Apache, apparently – to the fate of perpetually beleaguered Canadian manufacturer RIM and its forthcoming BlackBerry 10 platform in 2013 but the most awaiting thing is Samsung Galaxy S4, the successor of the South Korean firm’s Galaxy S3.
The Galaxy S3, first released in May 2012, is well into its life-cycle, so it’s only natural that S4 rumours are becoming more and more substantive by the day.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 would have a flexible OLED 1080p HD displays, rumour says.
“Foldable, rollable, wearable and more, [and] will allow for a high degree of durability through their use of a plastic substrate that is thinner, lighter and more flexible than… conventional LCD technology,” a preventative of the South Korean firm explained to PC Advisor.
Several release date rumuors for the S4 have been published, but the representatives of the South Korean firm have denied the veracity of all rumuors.
However, sparking speculation, Samsung has revealed the dates for its annual Forum and promised “major announcements”.
Specification (rumours) :
The Korea TImes claims to have been made privy to a substantial Galaxy S4 specification leak, which say a 5 inch device sporting an impressive 1,920 x 1,080 pixel ‘Super LCD 3’ display at a mind-boggling 445 ppi, coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 2.
Further speculations about the Galaxy S4 are the smartphone will use the 13MP sensor, 2GB RAM and a quad-core processor Cortex-A15 processor clocked at 2GHz.
Hint from Samsung:
An official has told Korea Times reported on condition of anonymity, “Samsung is ready to unveil the next Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S4, at early next year’s mobile world congress (MWC) in the Spanish city of Barcelona.”
